OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY! : My wife and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary at Nature's Paradise- it was perfect. If you are looking for secluded yet spectacular accommodations at reasonable pricing, this is it. Nature's Paradise is a hill top bed and breakfast above the prettiest bay in St. Lucia. It is secluded, yet close to 5 of the most popular restaurants on the island.

'Nature Dave' and his lovely wife Wanda are most gracious hosts. We had one of their 2 cottages to ourselves for one week (private decks overlooking the coast-the photos don’t lie) and were treated to a wonderful and relaxing breakfast each morning. Morning swims surrounded by their beautiful, lush tropical gardens, it was the perfect place to 'escape'. Dave is a wealth of island information and even provides personal tours of the island- we did one and it was great. R.G (London, UK)

A SPECIAL ROMANTIC HIDEAWAY!: Our home away from home for 1 week was Nature's Paradise in Maragot Bay, St. Lucia. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Our hosts, David and Wanda Wallace saw to it that all our needs were taken care of. We stayed in the Banana Cottage which had a great view of the Caribbean Ocean. This was our first time in St. Lucia so we didn't have a clue about what to see and do. David was very helpful in suggesting activities, restaurants, and tours. His personal tour offered to us was fantastic. He knew just where to go and was a pluthera of information concerning St. Lucia and its history and background behind every place he took us. We would recommend Nature's Paradise to anyone wanting a special romantic hideaway.

*****

WANDA PRUSKA-WALLACE:

“I love St. Lucia because of its abundant rain forest, beautiful shore line and laid back lifestyle.” Wanda practices and teaches Tai Chi and Eagle Claw Kung Fu. “Health and food (and David) are my passions.” explains Wanda. “Our fruit, veggies and fish are always fresh. It is a pleasure to cook and create mouth watering dishes with local ingredients.”

David & Wanda Wallace purchased this cottage in 2000

Why David & Wanda Wallace chose Marigot Bay

We choose St Lucia because it is the most beautiful island in the southern Caribbean. St Lucia has a large Rain-Forest, lots of beaches and wonderful warm people. It a rare country where you can relax and feel safe & secure everywhere. Stress is low and the food is great. So many restaurants!

What makes this cottage unique

Nature’s Paradise is about our spectacular views, lush gardens and 30ft, waterfall fed, swimming pool on the side of a cliff.

Our Tropical Breakfast (Mon - Fri) begins at eight and lasts until you have finished dining on our fresh breads & strong coffee. Fresh fruit is always available. The seasons dictate which fruits are on the table. Dining is in the Main House.

Did we mention our many Eco-Tours around the island?

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location high above Marigot Bay surrounded by nature and Wanda and David's hospitality is truly breath taking. Our cottage was comfortable and well equipped. For a couple living in the heart of the city, the sounds and silence of the tropics are absolutely delightful as is the lush tropical growth. We enjoyed the suggested restaurants particularly brunch on the porch of a colonial plantation house. Our trip to Soufriere with David was wonderful as was the dip in the remote warm springs. We also rented a 4 wheel drive vehicle to explore the island. We learned much about the tropical growth and flowers on this trip as well as life and culture of the island. Wanda's island breakfast's are perfect and the bananas from their own trees a particular treat. David's recommendations are always on target and the people of St. Lucia welcoming and helpful. Yes, Nature's Paradise is a unique adventure and you would be fortunate to share it.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

We arrived expecting a romantic, tropical paradise, with a touch of adventure, and Nature's Paradise gave us all this, & more. David & Wanda are perfect hosts providing exceptional accommodation in 2 cottages, fabulous breakfasts in the Main House & a wealth of helpful advice. Wanda's gardens which are a credit to her work & imagination. The adventure came with every trip we took in the jeep to nearby Marigot Bay, the most stunning part of St Lucia. Nature's Paradise is an ideal base from which to explore the islands stunning scenery & beautiful beaches. Highlights included waterfalls, botanical gardens, tropical rain forests & the volcano!
It was Nature's Paradise that made our stay all the more memorable and it is without question the best accommodation we have stayed in. Anne and Peter Robertson (Darlington, England)

Honeymoon in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Banana Cottage for a week at the end of March, 2013. We rented a car at the airport and made our way to Nature's Paradise later than expected due to a delayed flight. We found David & Wanda in the main house and they immediately jumped into action making us feel welcome. As David helped us with luggage and toured us around the lush property, Wanda brought us a perfectly refreshing drink that hit the spot. After we settled in, David took us down the hill into Marigot Bay, showed us around, and had reserved a delightful dinner spot for us on the water. When we were finished, he picked us up and brought us back up to our cottage.
Every morning for breakfast, Wanda made fresh bread and served all guests a blend of tropical fruits and juices. We thoroughly enjoyed each fresh breakfast as well as conversations with the other guests. After breakfast on our first morning, we sat down with David and got the "lay of the land," literally. His vast knowledge of St. Lucia and its people was impressive and served us well as we enjoyed our week in paradise. At that point, we felt confident about venturing off and exploring.
David made any arrangements and/or reservations we needed for both day and night activities. Two of our favorite daytime excursions were (1) going with David on an eco-tour to the botanical gardens, mineral baths, and active vulcano; and (2) renting a staffed sailboat for the day to explore the island from the water. Most evenings, we went to a Marigot Bay restaurant where David had reserved a top notch table for us - all were exceptional!
We enjoyed the Nature's Paradise pool, and found it to be the quintessential sunset spot. Incidently, there is no bad view from the property.
If you are considering staying at Nature's Paradise, keep in mind that although you are truly part of Marigot Bay, you are up a steep, bumpy, windy road and you will end up traveling that road many, many times. As mentioned, the property is perched beautifully for views of the bay and ocean, and we quickly learned to navigate around all of St. Lucia's steep, bumpy, windy roads - it became part of the island's charm for us.
We wholeheartedly enjoyed our stay at Nature's Paradise, and hope to return for a second honeymoon sometime. David and Wanda are exceptional hosts with unlimited knowledge and connections to make visiting St. Lucia a very memorable experience.

Top-drawer!

  • 5 of 5
NATURE’S PARADISE is exactly as portrayed on David’s excellent website. Better even. We stayed in a room to one side of the main house – both bungalows having been booked well ahead. Our room was fabulous, with its own bit of balcony overlooking the Caribbean, a tiny kitchen area, and an en-suite. With windows on 2 sides, and the option of leaving the en-suite door open, we could enjoy a cooling breeze day & night. The gardens & pool area are beautiful, again with wonderful views up & down the coast. A hire-car (4x4) is a must. Overall, we were very happy with our stay & will return. That David & Wanda are excellent hosts is the icing on the cake.

A Wonderful Experience in St Lucia.

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful trip!! The island is simply beautiful, its people, views and food - unforgettable. The best experience, however, was Nature's Paradise. The place, a small B&B, is beautifully located above Marigot Bay. The views from the cottages, decks and the pool are amazing. Our hosts, Wanda and David woke us up every day with wonderful breakfast and good music. They were able to suggest a place to see or a thing to do every day. Both of them know the island very well and did the activities or trips themselves. Also, they have all the resources and know a lot of local people to make the vacation very exciting. This was the most romantic and exciting vacation my husband and I have ever taken. We loved it!

Do Yourself a Favour

  • 5 of 5
Here’s the thing: you can do the resort, but you could be anywhere. You won’t know anything about the place, the people or even the real atmosphere of the island.

It is so easy to find alternatives, and they don’t come better than Nature’s Paradise, located in picturesque Marigot Bay. Dave and Wanda have prepared two self-contained cottages high on a ridge for you, nestling among tropical gardens, with your own balcony to sit on while you gaze at the boats sailing by far below. You do need a four wheel drive to get up the hill, but it’s definitely worthwhile as soon you’re sipping a cool drink by a pool with incredible ocean views and hummingbirds zipping by.

Dave and Wanda make it easy: they can arrange your car for you as well as any trips or tours you are interested in, serve you a lovely breakfast of fruit, fresh bread and if you’re very lucky, Wanda’s banana bread, and generally give you any information you need to enjoy your stay.

The location is excellent, as it is only a 5 minute rattle down the hill to Marigot Bay, equipped with small supermarket, restaurants, a local dive shop and of course the marina. It’s lovely to take the small boat which acts as a ferry across the bay to eat, and the whole place has a low key vibe.

Do get on the road and explore: the island is beautiful and if the people initially look a little forbidding in expression once you’re out of the tourist zone, all it takes is a wave and a smile to overcome their reservations. We got lost plenty of times, and always enjoyed asking for directions and sharing a joke. It was always nice to come home to our little cottage though and share our experiences with Dave and Wanda over breakfast the next morning.

If you don’t usually do independent travel, this is a great introduction. You will be comfortable, safe and relaxed, but will have left the screaming hordes far behind. If you are used to doing your own thing, you'll relish the friendly welcome, lovely location and privacy that Natures Paradise ensures.

Amazing Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
This has to be one of the nicest places to stay on the island. The view from their pool is stunning as well as the views from either of their cottages. Marigot Bay is one of the best places to stay on the island and close to most everything you need to see. David's Eco Tour is a must do and he is extremely knowledgeable about almost anything the island has to offer. The drive up the hill to their home is an adventure unto itself and the entire island is a fantastic place to visit.

We recommend renting a two person kayak and paddling around Marigot Bay and along the coastline. There are a few secluded beach's along the coast that are perfect to relax on alone. It's like a dream come true!

There is so much to see! In our 10 day stay we still had a fair bit left to see, so I guess a return trip is required. Needless to say, we'll definitely stay at Nature's Paradise again.

Car: recommended

Marigot Bay has a terrific beach. Natures Paradise is set high up on a hill for great views, so walking down to the beach is about 15 minutes, walking back up is about 30 minutes. The beach is on the north side of the bay and there are no cars or roads. You go by ferry which runs 24/7. The boat ride is about 2 minutes and is fun. The nearest town is Castries, which is the capital of St. Lucia. It is about 30 minutes by car. There are four very good restaurants and two great restaurants in Marigot Bay. It’s a culinary paradise. *** One of the most accessible expressions of Saint Lucia’s rich cultural heritage is its cuisine. The fertile soil of the island yields an enormous supply of produce. Saint Lucia’s tropical fruits include mangoes, papayas, pineapples, soursops, passion fruit, guavas, & coconuts. Local chefs combine the island's fresh produce with a variety of fresh seafood to create Creole-style entrees. Callaloo soup, is the national dish. It’s delicious.

Other Activities: Scuba Diving in the Caribbean; Great Snorkeling; Water sports on Marigot Bay; Hiking in the Rain Forest.
